Hello, you could try Cambridge Latin course, possibly in conjunction with Essential GCSE Latin by John Taylor. I also found latintuition.com a great resource as it offers support for students who are self teaching

If you're going to be self-teaching, then I'd recommend the Latin to GCSE series by Henry Cullen and John Taylor. It comes in two parts and does have answers, although the answers only tell you the correct answer and not necessarily why that answer is correct, which is where a lot of self-taught students come unstuck!

It might well be worth asking the language teachers at your school if they know any Latin or know of any teachers who do know Latin. Otherwise, you might want to consider looking for an online tutor as teaching yourself a language as different from our own as Latin is can be quite an undertaking if done alone!

Why sit a GCSE in it?
Why not just learn latin without getting a qualification? It will probably be a bit of a hassle and will be quite expensive.

But hwy, if you really want to / have a good reason to, then why not?
